Research summarySpecial Needs Dentistry

Research

My specialist experience in clinical Special Needs Dentistry and Hospital Dentistry extends more than two decades. This experience includes provision of clinical dental services to people with medical problems, people with learning disabilities, mental health problems, physical disabilities and older people with dementia whose care is best provided from a hospital-based setting.

My research expertise is in the field of 'translational research' and the application of best practice protocols in the clinical setting. Examples include treatment of, and treatment guidelines for patients taking bisphosphonates and patients taking anticoagulant medications who require oral surgery and patients with inherited bleeding disorders.
